Important Class Notes
Motion pictures made in foreign countries can help raise awareness of other societies and cultures. To see historical events from a different viewpoint broadens and deepens our understanding. The problems and issues common to all people, when addressed in another culture, may provide us with new insights into our own. We will view five films which will challenge us to understand not only other peoples' views of history and the human condition, but to develop deeper understanding of ourselves and our society. Participant discussions will follow each film.

Class Description
Without historical understanding, there can be no wisdom; without geographical understanding, no social or environmental intelligence; without economic understanding, no sane use of resources and, therefore, no future; and without civic understanding, no democratic citizens and, therefore, no democracy. This is why social studies matters. History, geography, political science, economics, anthropology and sociology are all potential topics.
